Atom, RSS and JSON feed parser for Python 3
Atom, RSS and JSON feed parser for Python 3.
Install Atoma with pip:
pip install atoma
Load and parse an Atom XML file:
>>> import atoma >>> feed = atoma.parse_rss_file('rss-feed.xml') >>> feed.description 'The blog relating the daily life of web agency developers' >>> len(feed.items) 5
Parsing feeds from the Internet is easy as well:
>>> import atoma, requests >>> response = requests.get('http://lucumr.pocoo.org/feed.atom') >>> feed = atoma.parse_atom_bytes(response.content) >>> feed.title.value "Armin Ronacher's Thoughts and Writings"
If you use this library to display content from feeds in a web page, you NEED to clean the HTML contained in the feeds to prevent Cross-site scripting (XSS). The bleach library is recommended for cleaning feeds.
To use this library a basic understanding of feeds is required. For Atom, the Introduction to Atom is a must read. The RFC 4287 can help lift some ambiguities. Finally the feed validator is great to test hand-crafted feeds.
For OPML, the OPML specification has a paragraph dedicated to its usage for syndication
Some seldom used features are not implemented:
XML signature and encryption
Some Atom and RSS extensions
Atom content other than text, html and xhtml
